If you listen to podcasts, you’ve probably heard of Lore, Aaron Mahnke’s “bi-weekly podcast about the dark historical tales that fuel our modern superstitions.” The podcast runs in 30-minute shows and discusses the origins of various folklores, like vampires, zombies, and haunted locations, as well as horror-based mysteries throughout history.
Right now, it’s #22 on the Top Charts on iPhone’s Podcasts app, and it has a 5-star rating. It has over 3.2 million monthly listens and was started just two years ago. It was also announced awhile back that it’d be getting its own TV show, and while news has been basically nonexistent about the series since, the show finally revealed its first cast member!
Robert Patrick, who has an impressive list of credits under his belt like Final Destination, The X-Files, Scorpion, and True Blood, will be joining his Terminator 2 producer, Gale Anne Hurd, on the set of the Lore TV series. While we don’t know much more than that, it’s rumored that he’ll have a “meaty part” on the show.
Patrick is set to film his part later this spring while on a break from filming Scorpion. Lore will start out with a ten episode first season through Amazon. Hurd will executive produce the series along with Mahnke, Howard T. Owens, Ben Silverman, and Brett-Patrick Jenkins. The series plans to be released late this year or early in 2018.
